Trade also gets a boost with additional cargo capacity of up to 20 tonnes
Emirates has launched a second daily flight between Dubai and Prague, to meet the increasing demand for travel on the route.
Emirates has been serving the Czech market since 2010 and during this time has carried some 1.7 million passengers on the route.
To meet the rising demand for both inbound and outbound travel, the airline has added this new daily flight operated by a Boeing 777-300ER with a capacity of 360 seats, boosting tourism into the Czech Republic by 262,800 seats a year.
The new flight will accommodate three classes on board, with eight private suites in First Class, 42 lie-flat seats in Business Class and 310 spacious seats in Economy.
Trade links are also set to improve with the additional cargo capacity of up to 20 tonnes offered by the belly hold of the wide-body Boeing aircraft.
Czech companies will now have further opportunities to export machinery, pharmaceuticals, perishables, glass and automotive parts to markets in the Middle and Far East, South-East Asia and Australia.
Flight EK137 leaves Dubai at 15:30 and arrives in Prague at 19:55. The return flight EK138 leaves Prague at 21:35 and arrives in Dubai at 05:30 the following day, giving travellers the full day in Dubai.
The service also provides seamless connectivity to Prague from several popular destinations in Emirates’ and flydubai’s combined route network, including Ho Chi Minh City, Bali, Bangkok, Colombo, Hong Kong, Johannesburg, Kathmandu, Kuala Lumpur, Maldives, Mauritius and Singapore.
First Class and Business Class customers can take advantage of a complimentary chauffeur driven car to and from both Dubai and Prague airports as well as access to Emirates’ exclusive airport lounges worldwide, including Premium airport lounge access on departure at Prague airport.
